Today is another day! The little girls had glowing reports from their new school, I got a great night’s sleep, and we received confirmation that Anna landed safely in London.
This tribe…this group of stampers that share my corner of the world…well, can I just say you all are amazing?! After my post yesterday , I had Facebook, Instagram and blog post comments that really lifted me up. THANK YOU for that. Wow.
The comment that stood out to me the most was the one that said the first one is the hardest…you got that right! It occurred to me at the end of the day, that I was not emotional about Eva going to Middle School. Oh my goodness! ‘my bad?
She is my baby…and the last little Pooler girl to finish Elementary School and start Middle School. We’ve done it twice already (so I was desensitized a bit) and getting Anna ready to go to Europe may have just distracted me a bit. I felt kinda bad that I didn’t shed a tear as Eva went on her way, but you all know how much I adore that kid! lol….and I did shed a few tears at her 5th grade graduation. That counts, right?
So now the little girls are in school, Anna is gone for 9 more days, the Stamp of Approval launch is over and we’re in a tiny down swing now. Phew. I’m catching my breath and focusing on ordering all that goodness for the holiday box.
YES! The HOLIDAY box! Sistahs and Bros! Just wait until you see this goodness. I’m head over heels for the products coming in September.
We also have another big project in the works for later this year…you know how much I love surprises, right? Well, we’ve decided that we are going to let you in on this one before it’s launch time.
So have some more fun in the sun over the last few weeks of summer and get ready…this fall is going to be GREAT!
Until then, how about a video!!??
